A beautiful old model of a Japanese temple protector [Shinto & Buddhist Temples ]. A male with open bared teeth seated with his paw on an openwork bronze ball. Meiji Period. There are traces of gilt in many areas. Rather then tell the stories of this object [Many books and internet sites are available ] we will simply say it is a fascinating object to study and learn about. After many years records of purchase and history of this piece were lost and are not available to prove provenance. By repute it has an interesting history [ with a Theosophical location ] and we will relate this information to serious offers for purchase. It is an important casting . The Chinese many times signed an object out of respect for the original but that is not the case here with a japanese work. Approx measurements are:

12 inches long- 6 1/2 inches wide-9 1/4 inches tall

Weight 14 1/2 lbs.

International shipping will be very expensive because of the weight and insurance.
